Pharmaceutical Chemistry Department

About Us

Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is an integral part of pharmacy education programme, as it covers several aspects of new drug discovery and development in collaboration with the other four departments of the institute. Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry has two-post graduate and three under graduate laboratories. The laboratories are designed and equipped with several state of the art technologies including sophisticated fume hoods attached with nitrogen and water supply. The department is extensively involved in under graduate and post graduate teaching with research oriented subjects like Organic Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, and Interpretation of Spectral Data. Our PG programme mainly focus on basic approaches to drug discovery, computational chemistry, molecular modelling, drug designing and development. The use of computer assisted drug design and molecular modelling software helps the students to learn the how drug binds to the receptor.

Major Areas of Research:

  • Drug Discovery in areas of Anticancer, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-diabetic, Anti-tubercular, Anti-fungal, and Anti-convulsant Research.
